Uncontrollable fear of dying

I've been battling panic attacks due to fear of death since my early 20's. When my Christian wife and I first started dating about 2 years ago I was an atheist. I was also struggling with drug addiction. She told me that God talked to her sometimes and I thought she was crazy, I didn't like for her to even talk about that because it made me uncomfortable. She had been praying that God would bless us because I was an unbeliever and one night she gets excited and says he said "It is done",of course I thought she was nuts. Over the next few weeks God started revealing himself to me. At first I didn't know what was going on but I knew it couldn't be explained, supernatural things was happening. Then one night during a thunderstorm evil shows up in our room. I could feel it moving around the room, i was so scared I couldn't even move. There was messages coming on the tablet screen, one said "Aren't you even gonna try", one said "You're going to hell", I was holding my stomach in the fetal position and an image comes on the screen of a person holding their stomach. About daylight it appeared to be gone so I get up and grab my phone. Electricity arcs from it to my fingertip, up my arm, into my head. I then hear demonic sounding talking and then at that moment the tablet gets a notification, I look at it and it reads "YOU SEE WHATEVER YOU CHOOSE TO SEE". I tried to pretend like I it didn't happen because It scared me so bad. Then I started having the worst nightmares you could imagine. After the third one I said I couldn't deny it anymore and I got saved and then baptized a few weeks later. Heaven and Hell is very real, take it from the biggest atheist there was. All you have to do is give your life to Jesus and you have nothing to worry about when you die, in fact you will live FOREVER in heaven with God! I would be happy to talk to anyone further, God bless!

Wow Jonro a really fascinating story I’m afraid of death and the unknown, my mam and partner has seen things and aren’t really scared of dying because of that, it helps me abit as I know they wouldn’t lie to me about things like that but it’s still hard

I wish I could help in someway, but it takes faith. You just have to believe that he is with you, God is omnipresent. He isnt in the sky looking down at us, he exists outside of time, space, and matter. He is everywhere and there is nothing that happens in this world that he doesn't know about. Just know that God loves you, you are precious to him. If you turn to Jesus Christ and surrender to him, you will go to heaven, and you will live forever. God is eternal, he has always existed and he always will, and he has given those who believe to his son. Jesus bought us with his blood. Believers in him now belong to him. We are his children and we will have eternal life.
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all ; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”
John 10:27*-‬30 NIV

I worry about this daily often worry about dying of an awful death or thinking about what happens when you are not around if you are reincarnated or just nothing. I try not to think about it however maybe with covid and stuff we hear about death every day it’s hard to get it out my mind? I worry if I fly on a plane I will die too? Any tips?

I noticed this often happens to people who experienced a near-death or have lost a loved one. We will all be but gone eventually, but then death will come to us and happen in just a minute or two, but life happened, is happening, and will still happen. Maybe just enjoy the time we still have and not worry 'bout what's inevitable. Two minutes is short compared to the time we already had. I hope I make sense?

Can anybody help? Lately I have noticed the fear increasing perhaps with covid deaths always on the news? I am in my 30’s but have a constant fear of dying. I believe it’s a problem if it affects your life daily which it does for example I can get an anxiety type attack where I feel weak and worry I am dying or I just feel on the edge or not relaxed? When I am at work this reduces my anxiety. I was hoping to do more CBT however the therapist ignored my emails and it says she is only doing video calls anyway which isn’t quite as useful. Each day I worry will it be my last day? Or I get awful thoughts of dying of something awful in my head. Has anybody got any tips I am sort of trying to figure out why I feel this way maybe the pandemic often I have a foreign holiday to look forward to but often with limited things to do I have more time to worry? Often I worry am I really living through all this but again perhaps it’s covid making it worse?
